Curious Catherine posted an interesting view on why we ought to be taking note of mobiles and the potential of applications. Specifically the iphone (i’m getting one soon).
This quote from the post to me says it all….
A well designed device which is asking to be used socially is going to give a boost to the websites and services which take advantage of this. If we think the iPhone has changed the game in terms of how we could use this device – and if we think that future phones are going to clone and copy its functionality – then we had better start thinking about how to use them for democratic engagement.
